Well, it has really become an annual tradition!!!
Here in the US,and elsewhere, the first weekend of May is FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, in which participating comic book specialty shops all around the world can get free comic books to pass out to their customers.
I love this, and it is a wonderful way to attract new customers and develop new audiences for comic books, when so much of unused potential for getting new readers is wasted.

I will be dropping by the shop my buddy Steve owns, in Waltham, MA:


In a brand new location, at 437 Moody Street, Waltham, MA!!!
